Except for blown transmission, and air compressor, it's a great truck
New transmission needed at purchase along with other multiple problems. We did purchase a really good after market warranty from the dealer, and thus about 2,000 of 3,000 repairs were covered..
Brake lines needed replacement. The warranty did not cover rust, and there is a lot of rust on the bottom of the truck. We live where there is a lot of snow and use of salt and gravel.
Air conditioning compressor had to be replaced (also covered under warranty, but shouldn't go bad this early).
Muffler is going bad and will need replacement soon.
While the warranty has helped, the fact that the transmission and air conditioning compressor needed replacement this early is a concern.
This truck handles well and rides smoothly and quietly. My family owned trucks growing up - always Ford, and this truck doesn't seem as loud even with the current muffler problem. It gets about 12 miles per gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
